A&E announced Wednesday that “Duck Dynasty”‘s Phil Robertson has been suspended from the show in the wake of anti-gay statements made in an interview with GQ magazine.

E! News obtained a statement from A+E Networks, A&E’s parent company, which read, ”We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments in GQ, which are based on his own personal beliefs and are not reflected in the seriesDuck Dynasty.”

The statement went on to say, ”His personal views in no way reflect those of A+E Networks, who have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”

Robertson issued a statement of his own just before the suspension, which read, ”I myself am a product of the ’60s; I centered my life around sex, drugs and rock and roll until I hit rock bottom and accepted Jesus as my Savior. My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together. However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.”

“Duck Dynasty”‘s next season is set to premiere Jan. 15 on A&E.
